Sehwag said that Maxwell does not take any pressure in the IPL. He only plays for fun.
Maxwell goes to hotel room with free drinks, claims Sehwag
Sehwag, who is a mentor of Punjab franchise, said, “Maxwell does not take any pressure in the IPL. He is only there for fun. He will do everything in the match – encourage the players, roam around, dance, not just score runs. As soon as the match is over, if he is getting a free drink, he will take it to his room or go to the room and take a lot of drinks. I don’t think he is serious about the IPL. When he comes in the IPL, he is more serious about his golf than cricket because if you are serious, the performance is visible.
‘Out of Australian team, it is difficult to return’
Sehwag told Sony Sports, ‘When he (Maxwell) plays for Australia his attitude changes. He knows that if he has two or three poor innings, he will be dropped from the Australian team and it will be difficult to return.
